For weeks I’ve been plighted with this strange, unidentified, obnoxious chirp, chirp, chirp sound that would repeat itself incessantly. I first heard it from the upstairs bathroom (the one that has no windows…the sound came straight through the walls. THAT obnoxious.) I thought it might be squirrels in the attic or maybe a pipe dripping…with really loud, obnoxious water.
Today, while at home (fall break!) and wasting time with a cup of coffee, I heard the sound once more and rushed to the window, hoping desperately to catch a glimpse of whatever beast or fowl was making that accursed sound. And glimpse it I did, for it was nothing but a little goldfinch, sitting in a tree by the porch, in plain view.
He was so pretty that I felt sort of bad for being so irritated with him.
I guess this means I need a goldfinch feeder.
Anyways, I changed my site colors in his honor.
